consideration. it could be repeal and replace. it could be a straight repeal with no replace. both of those plans have had pretty negative reviews from the office management and budget of how that would affect health care consumers. thune doesn't know, senator collins, nobody knows, and we may not hear -- we may have it -- here is the night or maybe not for a few weeks. it is not expected this week. haidi: we are looking ahead to that and implications for the political capital ride the president is trying to push. ross krasny in washington. from the fedected this week, but investors are pouring over that statement for the next hike and the balance sheet. , differenters sections of the market. this is bloomberg. ♪

about their outlook. they are still cautious about sustainability of this, that might be enough for the market to say, look, these talks of levels of growth we are seeing and the output term may not be sustainable. if they are confident of seeing continuing to grow, it is bearish. haidi: i want to bring up this chart. every time opec meets, we asked the same question. 8881 on the bloomberg. , theproduction on white difference is in the middle. his opec still producing? whatever ground they manage to gain, you have u.s. shale, u.s. production filling that gap. daniel: when you talk about the swing producers, is usually high cost. opec is on a cash cost basis.
6:19 pm
they think the u.s. shale producers have taken that spot essentially. they will react to the market forces much more quickly. and at the moment, they are responding to the relatively good prices compared to the level of cost at the moment and pushing additional supply into the market. haidi: where does it reach a level that does not happen? daniel: we are in a sweet spot at the moment. you can only get five dollars or so on the downside with the u.s. tole react, but if we push back on taps turned again. you are in the middle. haidi: are you looking at mostly largely supply-side dynamic at the moment, or are you looking at demand? daniel: at the moment demand is relatively ok. we saw a bit of a weak patch

a hit. the flight for the market in the second quarter, we saw the weakness in commodity markets as trade,t of the trump off so to speak. i don't think it was a strong driver to start with, so the impact at the moment is relatively limited. haidi: one final word on oil, what is the dem -- the outlook on oil? daniel: the level of disruption level,ting the non-disruptions are fixating. it will be an issue the market has to deal with. but clearly the u.s. shale producers, they are very resilient producers and still talking the talk at the moment. of start tos sort constrain their output, like we in the first decline

6:43 pm
used to say all the time that the laws of supply and demand have not been repealed. unemployment rate only dropped through the whole unemployment level in a few months, and it is not that they are below the level that you were supposed to get significant pressure on inflation. we are getting 1.5% per year in employment. it is not a blooming number, but labor force growth is 1% of that. it is straightforward that the unemployment group is going forward. you will see more pressure. wages started to accelerate already. i think the fed is right, but they are waiting to see what is next. even, they can pretty much repeat their language from last time when they stated inflation has come down recently, running below 2%, and they expect it to move up to the 2% goal.
6:44 pm
they are monitoring inflation closely. it works again this time. haidi: you sound more optimistic than a lot of people have been, certainly in the fixed income space. justifyally hard to what has become a consistent set going into anytime soon with inflationary pressures. haidi: you would not expect -- jim: you would not expect inflation to start soaring, but as number went from as low 1.5% in 2015 up to 3.5%, now 5.7, almost back to where it was over two years ago and there have been some special factors recently. the plunge in cell phone prices jumps out. arguably it is only in the last few months it has dropped below
6:45 pm
the employment level. if unemployment were to stop falling, would you get a significant inflation problem? do not do anything on policy, you will have issues. that is the way they are looking at it. the way they are describing their actions, they are backing off in terms of stimulus, taking their foot office accelerator but not jamming on the brakes. lack ofs this kind of inflation what defines strong levels globally, the fact that we don't see inflation/wage growth the way we would usually? do you think this is signifying structure change for the global economy that we need to look at wage growth in a different way? haidi: that is the ongoing --
6:46 pm
jim: that is the ongoing debate. it is true inflation expectations, which are an important part of the in -- the process of very low, and that is testimony to the bed's credibility just the fed's credibility. so that is a factor holding down inflation. and in the u.s., we are barely got through the full employment. looking at europe, the unemployment rate is still very high. it is still higher than the u.s. so the jury is still out in terms of the relationship between unemployment and inflation, and we hope unemployment is not the only thing that matters for inflation in the short run, but most been looking at it as pressures, and i have inclined to agree. we will see how that plays out over the next five or six
6:47 pm
months. i want to listen to remarks from mohamed el-erian. about the other issue the fed is preoccupied and thee systemic risks need to tighten before that gets out of control. -- isloyment is a agreeing -- he is green, inflation is yellow. the third factor that market underestimate, concern about future financial stability, this may be a tighter fed them with the markets believe right now. -- van what the markets believe right now. haidi: we have seen a louder chorus of fed speakers talking in theystemic risks market. do you think this is increasingly consideration taking place when they are
6:48 pm
having the durations? -- considerations? jim: it is secondary to the mandates directly, but it is in the conversation not just from the perspective of whether markets are getting stretched and there is risk of instability down the road and the market gets more and more stretched, but even more so the extent that financial conditions have been easing, the market going up, the fed coming down. if you look at the conditions, they have been easing since tightening last december. at the bloomberg financial conditions index, it has been steadily easing since late last year. the fed's perspective, that only encourages them to keep tightening. the goal of tightening is to make financial conditions less common.
6:49 pm
so the financial conditions we have producing 1.5% employment growth. the unemployment rate already is below the risk of unemployment, so you leave everything as it is and everything else is falling. they need to see financial conditions tightening. i want to throw up a quick turn and get your views on politics and how this plays into this. this is president trump is job approval rates. in his first six months he has proven to be the least optimal president in that time since the of modernnt it up -- polling. in the amount of diminishing political capital he has even within his own party. if you look at the ability realistically for the president to affect his policy agenda, do you think that is a massive downside pursing janet yellen
6:50 pm
and have? -- and co.? jim: they need to look at the outcomes, they will look at fiscal policy. even without anything of consequence from the fiscal , the trendsective are strong enough to justify tightening. beneficial,at the they assume no significant stimulus. to the act of washington, there reinforcement the case of tightening. so the approval rating itself is interesting although i think you have to line it up with the confidence number is in general, and there is a correlation between approval rate and the conflict numbers. the numbers have been pretty strong.
